So there are "1.5 lac Active army" in the active army of 11 lac. How does that work? How does any ot it works?Including TA mobilisation, Yes!
That's what is immediately available for 1.2 mn Active + 960,000 Reserve component.
What does the "immediately available" means? What exactly is the rest of the army is doing, nearly 10 lac of them?
You are tying yourself in knots over something you clearly don't know anything about.
Says who? How do you keep coming up with random numbers without an iota of evidence or logic behind it?We are getting 10% of this army with Sig 716i
I even gave you an out when I wrote the number of riflemen. All you had to do was multiply it with the number of infantry battalions in Indian Army to get a rough estimate.
You couldn't even do that.
So I guess I must have dreamt about the second 3,60,000 Carbines tender.Nearly same number get 96,000 CAR 816.
Sure if you say so.Rest get AK 203. Perfectly reasonable
No they are not. While your definition of "fighting men" maybe murky at best, tradesmen don't go through advanced infantry training.Even porters and tradesmen in Infantry Units are fighting men. It's like the USMC rifle company logo 'Every Marine a rifleman.'
Porters are not Indian Army employees but civilians.
At what point of time in your life you decided that IA is exactly like USMC and not a completely different organisation in a completely different country for a completely different purpose?
Dude please stop typing. You are not doing yourself any favours. Take a break.
